Behind The Awkwardness
“Our wedding anniversary happened to fall on the same day of our 31st week of pregnancy. We took a photo honoring both special days, which got a little out of hand (the life ring was the “guest book” at our wedding.)”

“Swollen left foot on the wedding and well no shoe plus the bowtie got crooked and the ushers tie was too short.”

“My parents wedding in the early 60s. My mother and aunt both wore pan-stick makeup and judging by these pictures you can see why they don’t make it anymore!”

“The year was 1976. My mom had just come home with that fabulous perm, and, apparently, I asked to have the same done to my hair. I was three or four at the time, so I’ll have to take her word on that. I do, however remember the traumatic experience of having that fro cut off several days after this picture was taken, because I played in a sandbox too emphatically and my mother couldn’t comb through the tangled, sandy mess! This picture will always make me smile (while shaking my head). It shows just how tiny our immediate family was – just me and my mom, with dad behind the camera at his studio. It’s goofy, sure, but back then, it was just ‘us’.

“This is my older sister (by 12 years) and my father. She got boxing gloves for Christmas and thought it would be a good idea to challenge our father. From the picture, you can tell, it wasn’t such a good idea.”

“At 9 years old, I learned to waterski. Being short, I got a lot of spray in the face. Goggles seemed like a good idea at the time.”
“I was so tired of my little sister following me around and having to be in every picture I was in – she just had to be the center of attention. This time my mom told me (in the red dress) and my friend while playing dress up to pose for a picture and I was not going to let my sister be in it. I held the door closed (notice my devilish smile) so she could not come outside in the picture. My mom didn’t even notice this until she got the picture developed. And I saw my little sister got her way, she was still in the picture.”
